Report Requirements and Illness and Injury Recordkeeping OSHA Rules

Report Requirements and Illness and Injury Recordkeeping OSHA Rules

From the ITA launch page, you may access the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) and submit your OSHA Form 300A information to the Agency. Certain employers have until March 2nd of the year after the calendar year covered by Form 300A to submit the data from the completed form to OSHA. There are also answers to often asked questions on the ITA launch website.

Documentation Requirements

It is mandatory for several firms with over ten workers to maintain a log of significant diseases and injuries that arise from their jobs. (A few low-risk sectors are not included.) The 2007 NAICS numbers serve as the foundation for the list of sectors that are partly exempt. Your partly exempt status would not change if an industry included on the “Non-Mandatory Appendix A to Sub part B – Partially Exempt Industries” was eliminated from the 2017 and 2022 NAICS classification system. Refer to FAQ 2-4 and 2-3. Records are not required for minor injuries that only need first assistance.

Employers, employees, and OSHA may use this information to assess workplace safety, comprehend industry dangers, and put worker safeguards in place to lessen and eliminate risks and avoid more illnesses and injuries at work.

Keeping and Uploading Documents

At least five years must pass while the recordings are kept on location. Employers are required to provide a summary of the illnesses and injuries reported in the prior year from February through April. Copies of the documents must also be given to current and former workers, or their representatives, upon request.

  • Acquire recordkeeping forms 300, 300A, 301, and extra guidelines.
  • Go over OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation (29 CFR 1904) in its entirety.
